Purchase of Item hard to get elsewhere.
Tried to purchase Osteoeze Proactive 750mg tablets from my usual supplier and elsewhere on the internet, and discovered it wasn't listed anywhere. Found your web site and had no problem ordering, paying for the goods (plus postage), and receiving it well packaged a couple of days later. Quite satisfying as a first purchase via your web site.
Fast delivery even though I don't live in Sydney.
Don't like paying postage where other suppliers don't charge postage for their goods.

Excellent prices, great range and good service.
Cincotta Chemist is one of those online stores I shop pretty regularly. I'm not buying prescription medicines online, but I use Cincotta for a lot of basic health and beauty products that I buy regularly like skin care and hair products and accessories. Cincotta is worthwhile for me because it is both convenient and significantly cheaper than the supermarket. Due to illness I have to do all my shopping online, and it's surprisingly hard to find online replacements for stores like Priceline that carry a wide range of health, beauty and household...items. Cincotta is such a shop, and I'm often surprised at the things I can pick up in one place. I'm slightly obsessed with natural, basic and affordable skincare solutions like tea tree oil, witch hazel, epsom salts, glycerine and almond oil, and Cincotta has all this stuff at good prices, along with bath and manicure products. They have a great range of competitively-priced confectionery (including lots of sugar-free lollies and chocolates if you're interested in putting yourself through that kind of misery), and it's weirdly satisfying to throw something yummy in the cart at the last minute the way you might in an actual shop. They also have a huge range of fragrances, so with a box of Lindt or Roses chocolates (also available at Cincotta) you could buy a perfectly acceptable birthday or Mother's Day gift and have it delivered within a couple of days. To give you an idea of the things I buy regularly, an order might include L'Oreal Preference Hair Colour, Cetaphil Face Wash & Moisturiser (highly recommended - I never use anything else), Pantene Shampoo, Tresemme Hairspray, Lady Jayne Hair Pins, Revlon Eyeliner, Maybelline Mascara, a packet of Lifesavers and a box of orange Tic Tacs (with which I'm obsessed). Most of these items are available at my local pharmacy and/or supermarket, but the prices are higher, even when you factor in shipping. Shipping is economical at $6.50 for orders under 3kg. I don't think I've ever ordered anything heavier than this. Express shipping is now $9.95 for orders up to 500g. I'm pretty sure it used to be $9.95 for orders of any size, so that's unfortunate. Cincotta used to guarantee that items "will dispatch on the same day the order is received providing the order is received before 11.00am (AEST) and goods are in stock and payment approved," however I don't believe I ever had an item ship on the same day, even though these guidelines were met. They have now lowered the time to 10:00am, and hopefully they're making more of an effort to live up to that promise. Items are usually well-packaged, though I once received confectionery items in a padded envelope which arrived crushed. The staff at Cincotta quickly replaced the items, however. My only other complaint is that Cincotta used to carry Darrell Lea items in their online shop, and they no longer do. It was really the only way I bought items from my favourite Australian confectionery brand, as I can't get out to a local outlet and the online Darrell Lea store charges $22 for postage to my area, with a minimum purchase of $30. By contrast, you can pick just one or two things up from Cincotta with no minimum spend and a low postage cost of $6.50. However, I can't blame Cincotta for no longer stocking Darrell Lea items, as they went into administration. Now that Darrell Lea has been bought by Quinn Foods, I understand it will be available through major supermarkets - I don't know if this means pharmacies will no longer carry the brand or not. Regardless, I'll keep using Cincotta for competitive prices on health and beauty items, economical postage rates and decent service. Wide range of products, excellent prices, cheap postage. Postage isn't always up to scratch; no more Darrell Lea!
